Over the years I think I have tried everything to keep my kids’ toys and sporting goods coraled, and if you have kids I’m sure you have too. While the amount of toys in our house have dwindled as the kids have gotten older, a couple things the kids have used consistently through the years are their Ripsticks and scooters. (Do you know what a Ripstick is? It’s kind of like a skateboard but it bends in the middle. I have yet to master it.) At 15 even my oldest will still use these on the driveway when he’s goofing around with his friends. Do your kiddos love them too?
I am constantly encouraging all the YOUTS (anyone? My Cousin Vinny?) to go outside and play. Forget texting and Instagram and YouTube for half an hour. Get some exercise. Actually interact and laugh with your friends in real life. The scooters and Ripsticks and balls and bats and lacrosse sticks – I am glad to have all this junk crowding my garage because I want the kids to get outside and be KIDS.
